Although Olga is a clinical psychologist by trade, she has always considered herself an artist, painting since she can remember. Her skills as a psychologist influence the atmosphere of her paintings which reflect the memories and wishes of many. She considers herself self-taught in combination with private lessons from Masters in Prague, Czech Republic as well as attending many art classes in community colleges both in the Czech Republic and USA.
She has lived and visited many places in the United States as well as in Europe and many of these locations became subjects for her paintings. She uses her own sketches and her own photographs of scenery that captured her attention and affected her mood. She is taking her travels and memories and bringing them to life through her paintings.
Her style is noticeably influenced by impressionists reflecting the beauty and vibrant colors of landscapes as well as capturing light and shade in the moment. She uses colors and texture to exaggerate or restrain emotions that may be considered an expressionistic influence. Most of her work is painted with oils on canvas; occasionally she will use acrylic or chalk depending on how she intends to capture the atmosphere.
Currently she is a member of the Oil Painters of America, America Women Artists, Minnesota Artist Association, and is represented by online galleries Laguna Beach Gallery and Saatchi Art Gallery. She moved recently back to California and became a member of the Oceanside Art Association, San Clemente Art Association, Art Association Laguna Woods, and Saddleback Art League.
